    Hi,

    Would it be possible to make a opkg installer for a usenet (nzb) downloader? E.g. nzbget, hellanzb or sabnzb? Most of these packages are also dependent on par2 and unrar-nonfree which I could extract from the armel debian packages… but the applications itself I never succeeded due to missing libraries.

    Thanks, the CUBOX is really running great here, would be totally cool if it also could deal with the nzb downloads.

    It should be possible;, let’s start with the first one : nzbget

    Take your time 😉

    What I am wondering, wouldn’t it be possible to have some compatible packaging systems within the Geexbox OS (e.g. Debian Armel or Optware?)

    As you just released a nightly hardfp version and told the packages are incompatible, I’d prefer a hardfp version as this seems more future-proof. Thanks!

    Thanks, I see the package, will let you know if it doesn’t work 😉 I’ve just done a little donation as gratitude.

    Unfortunately I get an error although I installed the libpar package too; I tried linking it but the attempt was unsuccessful:

    # ln -s /usr/lib/libpar2.so /usr/lib/libpar2.so.0
    # nzbget
    nzbget: error while loading shared libraries: libpar2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    ok, will look, but the donation was not an obligation  😉

    Thanks anyway

     

    edit : package corrected, missing library in libpar2, sorry

    let me know if you need some service to start nzbget at boot time

    Thanks, it seems to work now, but unless I get unrar-nonfree working, it is still not really useable to me as posts are always in rar format. I tried the unrar binary of debian (I have a dual boot with hardfp Debian) and tried the arm packages of http://www.rarlab.com/rar_add.htm but I get always a ‘not found’ error when launching the unrar command from the terminal. Any idea what could be done to get that working?

    Adding a service is no problem, I learned that while I was trying to get my wlan stick working (I posted a howto in the solidrun forum back in those days) 😉

    Thanks, it works now! I am impressed of the speed of unrarring, on my old mediaplayer (with realtek chip) it took ages. This little black box is now perfect to me. Thanks for all your work and support and I will keep on following your developments closely in the future!
